Keylor Navas shrugged off a groin injury and continued to play between the posts at PSG, alternating with Gianluigi Donnarumma. The Costa Rican goalkeeper was frank in an interview, saying he would not accept the clash to continue next season.
The 35-year-old spoke channel+: “I have a good relationship with Donnarumma. However, my wish is to play in every game. I can’t imagine going through the same situation again in the future. Certainly not another year. When I take stock at the end of the campaign, I will have a lot to think about. My family likes living in Paris and so do I. I feel good here. We’ll see what happens.”
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino commented on Navas and Donnarumma last week: “All players have ups and downs. Performances are never linear. Everyone can make mistakes. It’s clear that we have two top-class goalkeepers.”
The Italy international has drawn plenty of criticism for the giveaway that sparked Real Madrid’s comeback to the Champions League and a recent error against Olympique Marseille. Corresponding L’Equipe, his future is tied to Leonardo, who brought him to the French capital. If the Brazilian manager gets the boot, the former Milan star could be on his way out despite a long-term deal. Juventus have been routinely linked with Donnarumma in the past. However, they didn’t follow him after Fabio Paratici’s fall last summer as Massimiliano Allegri is a big fan of Wojciech Szczesny.
